Mini Shepherd's Pie Cups

Last week, I posted a recipe for lasagna baked in the jumbo silicone muffin cups. Several people have asked for more recipes using the jumbo cups. I really like cooking in the jumbo cups because they are perfect for portion control. These Casabella jumbo cups that I have are 3/4 cup capacity and are very sturdy. They are free-standing so they are easy to fill, and they're oven, microwave, and freezer safe and can be placed in the dishwasher. Easy clean gotta love that!! If you are looking for more recipes using silicone muffin cups, check out The Muffin Tin Cookbook. This is a great cookbook with over 200 recipes for meals cooked in a muffin tin. The recipes can be easily adapted to the silicone muffin cups. You can see my recipe for the Lasagna Cups HERE.

So, today I have a Shepherd's Pie muffin cup meal for you. (Hey, I like that...Muffin Cup Meals. Hmmm...could this be the start of a new series here at The Lucky Lunchbox??) Ground beef with carrots, onions, corn and peas in a savory tomato based sauce, covered with cheese, and smothered in a buttery potato crust....OH YEAH!! That is THE mouthwatering definition of soothing, make-you-feel-good eats. And fall is just around the corner. Shepherd's Pie is a perfect cool/cold weather meal. Let's all say it together now....Comfort Food! 

 If you have trouble getting your kids to eat veggies, this recipe is a great veggie "smuggler". The vegetables are buried in that savory tomato and gravy sauce with the meat, covered in cheese and creamy potato mash (most kids do like mashed potatoes)....they will gobble this down like they haven't eaten in a week. They're going to love eating out of these little cups, love individual servings. 
These mini Shepherd's Pie cups are really good, Friends. I hope you will give them a try. Recipe can be found HERE.
